Chris Nangoi

Sumkar MP adamant to change district

The Sumkar district authority funded a facility to process roofing irons and metal walling.

The roofing iron and metal walling will be processed and distributed to every household on Karkar Island and the Sumgilbar local level government areas which make up Sumkar district.

Mr Nangoi aimed to build modern homes for every household in the electorate by 2030.

He said the Sumkar district development authority has rolled out the project under a tight funding of K500, 000.

Sumkar people call on MP to visit district

A chief from Surumarang village, Ben Samlal told this newsroom today that since their MP left for Port Moresby during the government formation, he never returned to the district since.

Mr Samlal raised concerns that the only bridge that connects the people to the Madang township has collapsed and is yet to be fixed while their MP is still somewhere in the city.

He said many children are not attending schools on the other side of the river because their safety is not guaranteed when using rafts to cross the river.

Sumkar petition withdrawn

This time, it’s the petition filed by former chief justice and Madang governor Sir Arnold Amet over the Sumkar seat.

Sir Arnold filed the petition against Sumkar MP Chris Nangoi.

Nangoi’s lawyer informed the court on Monday that a notice of discontinuance in the proceeding was filed by Sir Arnold’s lawyer on Oct 5.

The court accordingly allowed the withdrawal of the petition and ordered for the security bond fee of K5,000 to be refunded to the petitioner.
